Jean Lafitte National Historical Park & Preserve - Barataria Preserve
Enjoy a taste of wild Louisiana: 23,000 acres of bayous, swamps, marshes, and forests, that serve as home for alligators, nutria, deer, over 300 species of birds, and more. Boardwalk and dirt trails wind through the preserve and waterways can be explored by canoe or kayak. The visitor center offers a film, displays, interactive exhibits and a bookstore.
Park rangers offer guided walks, canoe treks, and birdwatching walks; canoe treks and walks under the full moon show off the preserve by night. Many trails are wheelchair accessible.
